The Aston Martin CC100 is a stylish concept car that celebrates the British automaker’s 100th birthday. The CC100, standing for Concept Car in Aston’s 100th year, is made entirely of carbon fiber and is a tribute to Aston Martin's past and also a possible glimpse into what future AMs might look like. The Aston Martin CC100 has a 6.0-liter V12 engine and can go from 0 to 60 in four seconds, with an electronically limited top speed of 180 mph. The lightweight concept tips the scale at just about 2,645 pounds.

The racing roadster pays homage to the 1959 DBR1, a car which won at both Le Mans and he Nurburgring. Its interior features a retro LED dashboard, with seats and panels covered in leather and Alcantara. The Aston Martin CC100 was designed by AM design chief Dr. Ulrich Bez and built over a period of six months.
